As an alumnus of WC, I read with interest the article about the chalkboards in William Smith Hall. I am surprised that there are still chalkboards on campus. I would hope that as long as it is practical to keep them, for historical continuity that they are kept. If either the condition of the boards mandate change, or chalk and erasers become difficult to acquire, then it might become necessary to replace with whiteboards. Until then, I hope that the principle classroom building from a previous era may continue to have this remnant of the past.
